OK. i thought the point of RMD was to get the taxes from the the IRA sooner .

moving to Roth would still get the tax.

The IRS do not care: you still cannot do it. It makes sense to me that it should be OK, but making sense and IRS regulations are not normally discussed in the same sentence.



i'm an outlier ..IRS usually does make a kind of sense to me.*

usually, i can see where if the rule were different, someone could take advantage /Or someone would lose advantage.

.. i don't really see either with the "convert IRA to Roth OK; convert RMD to Roth not OK"

(ALL idle curiosity, of course --it IS what it is)





* maybe because i sort of worked in Tax Law for a few years
